Not For Many Of Our Soldiers and Their Families.
A British soldier has been killed by an explosion in southern Afghanistan, 4th of August, 2009.
It is believed his vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device.
A military press officer is suing the Ministry of Defence and claiming that he was forced to tell "government lies" to the families of British soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
John Salisbury-Baker, 62, says that his job required him to insist to bereaved families and the media that the soldiers had been properly equipped when they were killed, something he had come to believe was untrue and "morally indefensible".
What is there to say?
